Jeopardy has fascinated American quiz show fans since 1984 and this collection showcases five of the most memorable Jeopardy episodes. More intriguing than the episodes themselves, however, are the in-depth bonus features that focus on the game's history and inner workings. The first Jeopardy episode hosted by Alex Trebek in 1984 provides a look at a game with a somewhat different set of rules based on the then innovative idea of providing contestants with answers rather than questions. Contestant Ken Jennings' 74-game winning streak culminates in "Ken's 75th" losing episode and showcases this champion's amazing intellect, his grace in defeat and the audience's appreciation of him as a contestant. In the trio of "Ultimate" Jeopardy episodes, the game's three biggest champions Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and Jerome Vered face off in Jeopardy's three most difficult matches. "21 years of Questions and Answers," hosted by Merv Griffin and Alex Trebek, follows the game from its inception in the 1960's as "What's the Question" through the many milestones and changes that have marked Jeopardy's evolution throughout the years. "Behind the Answers" features commentary by senior producer Gary Johnson, director Kevin McCarthy, executive producer Harry Friedman, and host Alex Trebek, and follows ideas from inception through final production, detailing the immense amount of research devoted to each Jeopardy question. "What Does it Take to Get a Clue?" highlights some of Jeopardy's most memorable contestants including Ken Jennings (74 consecutive wins), Frank Spangenberg (5 time champion in 1990) and Eddie Timanus (Jeopardy's first blind contestant in 1999) and describes the qualities inherent in a great Jeopardy contestant. Finally, the multi-camera option follows an episode through five separate camera angles giving viewers access to the control booth, Alex Trebek's screen and podium, and multiple angles of the contestants and game board. --Tami Horiuchi

Jeopardy! is one of the most fun programs on TV. It is by far the best game shwos on TV. The Inside look of Jeopardy will feautre basically these episodes of this fine program.

1.) Premiere episode from 9/17/84 with Greg/Lois/Frank (This is where the first champion Greg puts on a show during the interview) Note: the 2nd show though not featured on the DVD had the 1st 0-0-0 tie in the series history!

2.) The 75th appearance of Ken Jennings in which he lost to Nancy Zerg but wins $2,522,700!!!!!!!!

3.) Day 1 of the 2004-05 seasons tournament of champions finals with Brad Rutter from the '02 seasons and of course Ken himself in which was a 3 day tuornament!

4.) Day two of the tournament!!!!!!!

5.) The last day of the tournament with Brad Rutter winning $2,000,000 and regaining the J! winnings title!!!!!!!

So alot at stake when Jeopardy unveiled comes out soon! Don't Miss it!

This dvd is very great and wonderful, especially since it has the complete first Jeopardy show, from 1984! It is really incredible to see that 1st J. show again! I wish all of Jeopardy's (to date) 22 years would be released on DVD. Wouldn't that be something! Alex Trebek is incredible. He is the greatest celebrity of all time, in my humble opinion. Long live both Alex, and Jeopardy, the greatest guy and show ever on TV!

Fascinating insight into the world of Jeopardy - answered some questions the husband and I had for the show. Can't believe they shoot the whole week's worth of shows in one day!! What a surprise. Very cool insider information. Good purchase.

This is a good DVD. Yup, after Jeopardy! deletes a 5-day champion restriction. A history is made, Ken Jennings went on to win 74 games and won 2 and a half million dollars before he lost to Nancy Zerg. I watched that game and it was very good. Also, I watched the 3 games of the UTOC fianl of Jeopardy! It is fantastic for me. It is a totally good UTOC match. However, it is the fantastic moment for Brad Rutter who wins 2 million dollars at the end. Also, for the extras, it is good and it provides the fantastic 21 years of questions and answers. Overall, this is a good DVD.

Everyone in my family is a Jeopardy fan, so this video was a lot of fun for us! It's always fun to watch old shows and see the changes, and the information segments were also interesting. It was well worth the money for us, and would be a great gift for a trivia-geek.

There isn't anything wrong with the DVD....its old episodes which is fine, but the Volume is horrible on it, the quality at full volume is hard to hear and even worse in a portable DVD player. I bought this for my son because he loves this show but with the poor sound quality he loses attention fast.
